Student Leadership

Only a relative handful of our students receive the rewards of leadership. St George’s has such a high calibre intake of prospective leaders and highly responsible students that selecting a few for “Prefectship” or House or School Captain, is always a tough decision, inevitably leaving perfectly able students disappointed at their lack of appointment.

New to St George’s?  Do not despair at gaining status! Annually, many new Georgians have been made Prefects, House Captains, School Captains or Deputy School Captains, Boarding Prefects or Boarding Captains! Be pro-active, join in!

The roles comprise of:

School Captains

The School Captains represent the Headmistress and her deputies in a range of ways.  This may include making speeches at Open Evening, giving votes of thanks to visitors, reading in Chapel, delivering Assemblies, representing the Headmistress or the student body and organising whole School events, such as Education for Africa Day.

School Captains

Isabel

Hello, my name is Isabel and I feel very fortunate to be one of the School Captains here at St George’s. I am currently studying English Literature, History and Economics at A-Level with the aspiration to read Law at university. No one can really articulate what it is that makes our school so incredibly special, but as soon as you arrive here you belong to a real community. The school has not only given me an excellent education, but has, through wider aspects of school life, shaped me into the person I am today. By providing me with numerous opportunities, ranging from representing the school on the lacrosse pitch to immersing myself in the chaos of House Music competitions, I could not have asked for a better platform to allow me to grow into a well-rounded individual. I am so grateful for these experiences and hope that our actions as the Executive Team can begin to give back to a school that has given us so much. I’m so excited to be working with the amazing Senior Prefect Team and can’t wait to see what this year brings.

Isaac

Hello, my name is Isaac and I’m one of the School Captains here at St George’s. I am studying Maths, Economics and Religious Studies with the hope to study Law at University. For me, life at St George’s has been wonderful and an experience that I will never forget. As well as helping me to academically thrive, St George’s has provided me with countless opportunities to develop as an individual. Whether that was through the many different House events, such as House Drama or House Quiz, the countless extra-curricular activities or through the school motto – ‘Aim Higher’. I’m thrilled to be working alongside the other School Captains this year and can’t wait to support the St George’s community as we embark on this next year of our academic journey.

This year, I am looking forward to working with the rest of the St George’s community to make our school an even more special place for everyone here.
